Ken was born in Rouleau, SK on May 6, 1927, the son of R. Melvin and Evelyn Argue. He passed away on Monday, May 18, 2015 at the age of 88 years.

He is survived by his sons Stan Argue and Melvin Argue (Steve); daughter Evelyn Argue (Ricardo); granddaughter Jaimie Rankin grandson Devon Blake; sisters Gwen Dickson and Delee Onerheim (Bill). From his youth Ken was a hardworking farm boy and proudly told the story of how he had seeded 100 acres of wheat at 11 years old. In 1945 he graduated from Rouleau High School and started at the University of Saskatchewan in Saskatoon the same year. After graduating in 1952 with degrees in Arts and Science and Pharmacy, he worked in and owned pharmacies throughout Alberta. Later he was hired to Federated Co-operatives head office in Saskatoon where he supervised their pharmacy program and wholesale division for Western Canada. He retuned to Alberta to accept a position as Drug Merchandizing Manager for the National Drug Co. In 1977, he wished to return to small-town life so he and his wife purchased the pharmacy in Bentley, Alberta which he ran until his retirement in 1993. In his younger years, Ken was an equestrian horse jumper and with his horse Trigger he won numerous ribbons, championships and trophies in jumping competitions. In later life he raised and trained Appaloosa horses at his ranch near Saskatoon. Another hobby Ken developed a love for was sailing which he was so keen at he even built his own boats – from a 12 foot dinghy to a 22 foot cabin cruiser. He also was an avid pianist and organist often playing for church services, weddings and funerals. Ken spent 5 years as president of the Bentley Chamber of Commerce and also served on the Bentley Hospital Board. He was an elder and member of the Mormon Church since 1964. Ken believed in God, family, honesty, hard work, and love.
